Luckily for me and you, I just finished writing some pieces related to seniors and how one could help them become happier and more cheerful. Now I’m going to be talking about Robotic Pets which could help seniors cope and enjoy their lives to the fullest. As a trainer of dogs, I could tell you that these dogs are not robots. No matter the amount of training one gives their pet dogs, they can never be perfect. And these are the things one enjoys with having them around. The joys that come with their imperfection. But let’s talk about Robotic dogs, shall we?
These days, pets created electronically are becoming common. Everywhere you go, you’ll tend to see them. It is like they are all making a full-blown comeback.
These Robotic Pets are created to give people like seniors a sense of comfort and companionship. This would help them rise and feel better, especially those suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia. These Companion pet dogs cost about a hundred and thirty dollars. They could get purchased through the internet from retailers like pharmacies and Amazon through CVS. Unlike traditional stuffed animals, these companion pets can aid in interaction and they’ve got a heartbeat and an interaction to human touch.
CEO and Co-Founder of Ageless Innovation Ted Fischer, with the company behind the Joy Robotic Companion Pets, explained that these Robotic dogs were created and developed using extensive input from seniors. They are created to sound, look, and feel like real puppies but they do not have any responsibilities of having to own them. Fischer stated that these seniors want realism, two-way companionship that’s interactive between themselves and the pets.
These pets were created to be what a perfect pet would be. There are two varieties of these dogs. But let’s leave that and talk about how these Robotic Pets help seniors to cope. Because I’m sure that’s what brought you all to this piece.
How do Robotic Pets help Seniors Cope?
These Robotic Pets helps seniors cope because they give the type of love and warmth that real dogs offer. They do not have all the mess and responsibilities that a dog owner would have to manage with a real pet. They can create sounds made by real pets and they have realistic dog fur. These Robotic Pets react to the sound of the voice of their owners, especially to their touch. Just like a real puppy. This two-way interaction helps these seniors create friendships with these pets and in return, they get to enjoy fun, joy, and an awesome epic experience.
These Robot Pets help with Therapy to Seniors
Before the COVID pandemic, these Robotic Pets helped in nursing homes and hospitals. They aided in the entertainment and to support emotionally the residents and the patients. These all significantly showed that these dogs served as therapy dogs in more ways than one.
